In the early 20th century Walter Nichols was one of the most flamboyant American rug producers in Tientsin, China. Nichols had over 15 factories across China. Walter Nichols’ rugs were made of wool and silk; the colors were bold, robust, and energetic. Patterns include pictorial scenes, trees, birds, clouds, mountains, dragons, and striking flowers. Nichols did not originate the Chinese Art Deco rugs but did a great deal in popularizing them and preserving a high standard of rug making. Chinese Art Deco rugs where produced from the 1910s to the 1950s. With Nichols help the productions started to use more vibrant colors, itinerant from the two color rugs made earlier. Chinese rugs were mostly made for internal use. In this time period Western influences made an unmistakable change in the production, forsaking the ornamental look of the Art Deco designs.

History of Chinese Rugs
Research shows that following the western Han Dynasty (206 BC – 24 AD), the technique of carpet making spread across China and along the Silk Road. The Chinese rug is said to have originated in northwestern China around the Xinjiang area. Rug making later made its way to Beijing, formerly Peking. It was not until the mid-19th century that China began exporting rugs to the West. The Chinese textile industry is rich in history. Most of the Chinese carpets are made after a specific region, but scholars attribute the age of a rug to the ruling emperor of the time. The traditional Chinese knotted rugs were made from wool. Early weavers found that silk had special qualities which gave shades of different colors as the light source changed or varied. The designs were developed by weavers who followed Buddhist and Taoist and their symbols and art forms. The complex and geometric designs were simple but had well-balanced symmetry while having local physiognomies. Popular designs are the lotus flower, clouds, mythical animals, trees, birds, and Chinese symbols. The designs are largely symbolic rather than decorative, and the colors used were elegant and emblematic. The art of rug weaving reached its peak from the 16th to 18th centuries.
